Barnet's secondary schools remain on top
Barnet’s secondary schools look set to remain among the best in England after scoring top GCSE results.
Provisional GCSE results show 73 per cent of pupils achieved five or more A* to C grades including English and maths – a five per cent improvement on last year’s 68 per cent.
The results also show 90 per cent of pupils in Barnet received five or more A*to C grades, which was also an improvement on last year’s 86 per cent.
Barnet Council’s cabinet member for education, children and families, Councillor Reuben Thompstone, said: “The GCSE exams are now tougher than ever before, the national picture reflects this – so credit should also go to teachers and school officials around the borough who have made sure that schools in Barnet are of a very high standard.
“Last year, Barnet's secondary schools were in the top ten per cent in England and it is expected that given the continued improvement, not only will they maintain this achievement, but they’ll move even higher up the league table.
“Given the national context of GCSE exams toughening and the national fall in pass rates – this is an amazing achievement for all involved.”
